Whitewater Rafting Guide To River Trips

North Carolina

North Carolina whitewater rafting can only mean one thing…the Nantahala River. Located just minutes from Great Smokey Mountain National Park, the Nantahala River is the heart of southeastern whitewater. The Nantahala and Blue Ridge Mountains in Nantahala National Forest, are some of the highest peaks in the Appalachian range. A network of bisecting streams meander down the steep slopes and make their way to Aquone Reservoir.
